I'm bust-a-nut happy that this is finally seeing the light of day. However, it should be noted strongly that this is based on the current "early alpha" build of Residual, and as such you should expect rocky sailing. (Tip: Don't press space bar while playing! It seems to hang the app.)

Performance is clunky on my PowerBook G4 (1.5Ghz, 1.5GB RAM), netting around 8-10fps during movement. Dialogue trees and pre-rendered scenes are smooth, but all the "playing" bits are rough.

I only tooled around the office for a bit, so I'm not making this an official review. Download it at your own risk and only to get a taste of what's to [hopefully] come, but it is darn nice to finally see what the ScummVM guys have been working on all this time.
